Description

This newly revised edition incorporates the regulatory requirements and improved practices for laboratory animal care that have developed over the past two decades.

The volume covers

  • Selection of dogs as research models.
  • Design, construction, and maintenance of facilities.
  • Temperature, humidity, food, water, bedding, sanitation, animal identification, record keeping, and transportation.
  • General veterinary care, as well as special care of breeding animals and random-source animals.

Laboratory Animal Management: Dogs examines controversies over proper cage sizes and interpretation of federal requirements for exercise and offers recommendations for researchers. Guidelines are provided on how to recognize and alleviate pain and distress in research dogs and on the sensitive topic of euthanasia.

Laboratory Animal Management: Dogs discusses how to assemble a proper research protocol and how to handle conflicts. Outlined are procedures for institutional animal care and use and committee review. The volume also presents guidelines for handling aging dogs, use of radiation in experiments, and a wide range of other special circumstances.

Thoroughly referenced, this guide will be indispensable to researchers, research administrators, review committees, and others concerned about laboratory dogs.
